Fantastic reading with just the right amount of acting and characterisation to make each person clearly different, all delivered with perfect clarity. An excellent voice for this story.

Great Book. Great Reader.
The BE reader’s talent for presenting different voices is remarkable and his general style is just perfect to convey the era. This is Conan Doyle's second "book" of four, though many see it as more an introductory “first book” style than the previously published A Study in Scarlet. The book was solicited from Conan Doyle at the same dinner as the publisher solicited Oscar Wilde to write what would become A Picture of Dorian Gray, both published in the same year, 1890. With the additional space, Conan Doyle manages to tell the London story and then the India back-story, tying it all together. I liked that and I liked the allusions to current history in India. He introduced a key female character and also softened up the character of Holmes as being more human, and less the automaton as previously. It will help you to know that the original title was The Sign of the Four, having two “the”s. Early-movie buffs can view free the 1932 movie version on www.hulu.com.

This is a very well done interpretation of the Sign of Four.

The Sign of Four
Possibly the best of the full-length Holmes stories (far better than the over-hyped THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES) it is also the inspiration for the best Holmes pastiche, Nicholas Meyer's THE SEVEN PERCENT SOLUTION.
The reading is superb. Many great actors have tackled the roles of Holmes and Watson. This unfortunately anonymous actor does them both with distinction.
Now if I can find audio of this quality for those books I'm never going to actually read.
